For Mariah Carey, first comes love, then comes an engagement—and then comes a jaw-dropping engagement ring.
While we're elated to hear the 45-year-old Grammy winner is set to say "I Do" to her longtime fiancé, Australian billionaire James Packer—he popped the ultimate question Thursday night over dinner at New York City's Eleven Madison Park—we're ready to gush over the 35-carat
ice rink ring newly perched on her left hand.
In addition to colossal carat size, the diamond is flanked by baguettes all set in platinum. As a sentimental touch, part of the band was left bare for a future inscription from Packer, according to Vogue.
The stunning piece of jewelry takes the sparkler cake as far as celebrity engagement rings are concerned. For perspective, the infamous Krupp Diamond gifted to Elizabeth Taylor by Richard Burton clocks in under this stone at 33 carats. Beyoncé's rock from Jay-Z is a little more than half that at 18 carats while newlyweds Sofia Vergaraand Amal Clooney's rings from Joe Manganiello and George Clooney pale in comparison at 7 carats.
